"Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one."

Beyond the stagnating water 

of this bloodridden land.

Plop. Russle. Buzz.

Beyond the blasts hanging in the air 

like bad breath between us. 

Ribbit. Tweet. Swoosh. 

Beyond the earthy mounds,

of the graves of childhood friends,

The musk of rain abounds,

Life sings its varied songs, 

Through buried sounds,

And I hear your whispers

Near and far. 

I see you come alive  

Among the clinking liveliness

Beyond this tired battleground.

I hear your whispers

Soft and loud.
